This photo was sent to me quite some years ago by Dennis Weller, son of Albert Weller whose photos I have featured extensively on NEM:

The location is clearly in Middlesbrough Dock Cut, with Dock Point in the background, the site of W Harkess & Son - Iron & Steel Shipbuilders as can be seen on the warehouses.
David Asprey provided me with some details of her career:
ST QUINTIN steel screw pilot boat [don't have her full details]; ON 105642 45g 12n 65.5 x 16.0 x 6.9ft; blt 1899 N Shields eng 24nhp; built for ?
1915 purchased The Steam Pilot Boat Co (Cardiff & Bristol Channel) Co Ltd. (mngd James A Duggan), Cardiff

Dave's entry at: ... n1899.html provides additional information on her earlier career. Presumably it was while registered at Scarborough that she visited the Tees.
